Chocolate and peanut butter melted snowman cookies topped with white chocolate and peanut butter cup. Not only are these fun to make but they’re also really delicious!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 810 oz. good-quality white chocolate
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil
  • Miniature peanut butter cups, unwrapped, halved vertically, and tops sliced off (see photos)
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Orange, red, or brown sprinkles “jimmies”

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter and peanut butter with a handheld mixer on high speed. Add cane sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined. Add egg, milk, and vanilla; beat until combined. On low speed, beat in cocoa powder and flour.
  3. Scrape down the bowl with a rubber spatula. Divide the dough into two balls. With hands, roll out the first ball into a 13-inch log. Cut into 10 even slices. Shape each slice into a ball and place 2-inches apart on a baking sheet. Repeat with the second dough half.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and lightly flatten the tops of the cookies with a non-stick spatula. Place back in the oven and bake for an additional 2-3 minutes. Remove from the oven, allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack. 
  5. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave the white chocolate until completely melted and smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir in coconut oil.
  6. Spoon some of the melted chocolate over the cooled cookie to resemble melting snow, add peanut butter cups to resemble a hat, mini chocolate chips for the eyes, and sprinkles for the nose. Allow the chocolate to set at room temperature. Store in a covered container for up to 4 days.
